You might have noticed Yatra charges convenience fee on coupon basis. That means more discount more fee. Currently for domestic flights, Yatra is charging approx. Rs 300 for domestic one way flights and Rs 460 per person for round trip flight bookings if you don’t apply any coupon code. But if you avail any instant discount offer with a coupon code then convenience fee changes accordingly. Luckily there is a way to escape these overcharges.
HOW TO AVOID HIGH CONVENIENCE FEE ON FLIGHT BOOKING WITH YATRA?
After selecting your desired flight and filling traveler details, directly proceed to payment page without applying any promo code. This way you will be charged regular convenience of flight booking at Yatra i.e Rs 300 for domestic one way flight booking and Rs 460 for round trip flight booking.
Now come back to previous page where coupon needs to be applied (Remember, you don’t have to come back to search results page) and apply coupon. Now proceed further to payment page and you will find convenience fee is not increased.
